Program Itinerary

Day 1: Cusco - Ollanta - Km 82 Piskacucho - Ayapata 1st Camping.

Early pick-up from your hotel will begin around 5:00 am. We will meet at our departure point, Plaza Regocijo, by 5:30 to board our private transportation. Make sure you carry your original passport or ISIC card. Our journey from Cusco to Piskacucho takes approximately 3 hours, with many beautiful views of the Sacred Valley, the Urubamba River, Andean towns, and the Inca town of Ollantaytambo. Along the way, we will stop to stretch our legs, use the bathroom, and enjoy breakfast, before continuing on to Piscacucho (2,680 m / 8,790 ft). There we will meet our camp crew and the porters who will carry our belongings during our 35-mile hike. Passports in hand, we clear the official Inca Trail check point, cross a suspension footbridge across the Urubamba River, and begin our trek with a gentle climb. We have three hours on relatively level terrain as we follow the course of the river, rewarded with superb views of Mount Veronica (5,750 m). The easy walk passes through a forest of giant cactus and native bushes. At Miskay we take the trail to the left, ascending gradually to Willkaraccay high above the mouth of the Cusichaca River and across from the Inca town of Llactapata (Terrace Town). Our vantage point is from a flat bluff above the extensive site, which was built as a fort because it commands the entrance to the Cusichaca Valley. The terracing system was used during Inca times for growing maize, a prestige crop that needed irrigation in the dry highlands. After a short rest, we continue another 15 minutes down to our lunch site at Tayaroc. Our path is adorned with native flowers and bromeliads growing in the boulders along the left side, and by majestic views of the mountains in both valleys. Walking times are always approximate, depending on weather conditions, group ability and other factors. After lunch, another 3-4 hours will bring us to the village of Wayllabamba (3,000 m / 9,840 ft), followed by an uphill climb through woods and along a stream to our first camp at Ayapata (3,300 m / 10,824 ft). You will be rewarded with Te Macho and a buffet dinner. Buenas Noches!!!
Meals: BLD, Accommodation: Camping, Maximum Altitude: 3,300 m/10,824 ft, Minimum Altitude: 2,680 m/8,790 ft, Distance Travelled: 12 km approx Approximate Walking Time: 6-7 hours / Ascent up: 620 m

Day 2: Ayapata, Llulluchayoq, Dead woman`s pass, Pacaymayo, Runkuracay, Sayacmarka, Chakicocha.

After breakfast, we depart from the Ayapata camp around 7:00 am. This is our longest day, but one rewarded with spectacular views down several valleys and up to the surrounding snow-covered peaks. We will put in a 5-hour hike to reach our lunch camp in the Pacaymayo Valley, then another 3-4 hours to our night camp at Chakicocha. We begin with a 900-m ascent up to the Warmiwanusca (Dead Womans) Pass at 4,200 m/13,776 ft. Along the way, we ascend steeply uphill through the Corralpunku Valley to the Llulluchayoc Zone, where you can see several species of birds. With luck we will see hummingbirds, falcons and black-chested buzzard eagles. We will soon enter a beautiful cloud forest, or polylepis woodland, and the treeless grasslands of the puna. From this point, you can see the highest pass ahead. The path climbs for two more hours along a large number of steps, some of them newly laid to protect the mountain from erosion. You can walk at your own pace, stopping to catch your breath whenever you like. This last hard climb brings us to Dead Woman's Pass, the first of two that we will cross today. Once the full group reaches this pass, we take a rest break before beginning a steep descent into the Pacaymayo Valley on the other side. You will find that your energy returns as we proceed along this downhill segment toward a generous lunch and rest. In the afternoon we begin a second ascent, this time to the ruins at Runcuracay, located a bit below the Runcuracay Pass (3,950 m / 12,956 ft). From the pass, in clear weather, you can look back to the Dead Woman's Pass and forward to a breath-taking sweep of snow-capped peaks. These include the 6,000-m Pumasillo (Pumas Claw) massif. From here, most of the trail is downhill or gently undulating until we reach the impressive ruins at Sayacmarca. After some exploration, another 20 minutes bring us to Chakicocha (3,400 m / 11,000 ft). This will be our coldest night on the trail, at around +3 degrees C in December and -4 C in June. Teatime and Buffet Dinner.
Meals: BLD, Accommodation: camping, Maximum Altitude: 4,200 m/13,776 ft, Minimum Altitude: 3,000 m/9,840 ft, Distance Travelled: 16 km approx, Approximate Walking Time: 7-8 hours / Ascent up: 900 m

Day 3: Chakicocha, Aobamba Valley, Phuyupatamarka, Intipata, Winaywayna, (Aguas Calientes -optional)

At sunrise, you will catch sight of Sayacmarca back along the trail, perched on the side of one of the many mountains that surround our campsite. Today´s hike is exceptionally beautiful because we will pass the ruins of Phuyupatamarca, Winaywayna, and Intipata, and enjoy dramatic vistas of the Aobamba Valley. This stretch of the trail is of well-kept paved stone, still in great condition after hundreds of years. Your lungs will appreciate the fact that today´s hike is much more down than up, and significantly shorter than yesterday´s.  In getting to Phuyupatamarca (the Town of the Clouds), we will pass through the first of two short, natural tunnels in the mountains. After visiting this site, we will descend about 2,000 stone steps to Winaywayna. If you have not had any knee problems up to this point, you may after this descent. If you have had prior knee injuries, we recommend the use of trekking poles, and perhaps an extra porter, to relieve some of the stress on your joints.  Around mid-day, we will arrive at the site of Winaywayna the last of the remarkable ruins en route, which we will explore and have a guided visit (2,700 m / 8,856 ft). After we will visit the adjacent site of Intipata with its dramatic terraces on the left side of the road. 
After visiting the complex of Wiñaywayna we have our lunch and time for a rest before we continue with our last section of our trek for about 1.5 hours toward the Sun´s Gate Inti Punku, natural mirador of Machupicchu here you can make really nice pictures and contemplate the beauty of this impressive wonder.
From Inti Punku,- a final easy 40-minute hike will bring us to the entrance to Machu Picchu itself. The trail ends at a series of terraces, which present classic views of the overall city. We will continue on to explore the site, with explanations provided by your guide. Now in front of Machupicchu you will have time to appreciate this marvelous and magical place from the top levels near farming terrains to have spectacular views, after we enjoy enough time we start to walk down for 10 minutes toward Machupicchu´s main gate to board a bus to Aguas Calientes town, where staff of Viajeros Hotel are waiting for us.  After settle in our private rooms, your guide will take you to the natural hot springs to relax and indulge your muscles then return for our dinner at the Hotel. OR our 2nd option is if you don`t want to end in Aguas Calientes town, to get off the bus at Puente Ruinas camp for our 3rd Night in camping in Puente Ruinas near to the river OR our 3rd option is to stay at Wiñaywayna camping for the 3rd night (2 hours before Machu Picchu) and walk this short leg on the morning on Day 4th. and arrive to Machu Picchu by 08:00 am and spend the full morning with your group and have a guided tour.

(In case of 5 Day trip we recommend you to book a 2nd turn entry at 10 am,) Additional options: If your legs, lungs, and energy still hold up after our four days of hiking, it may be possible to climb the peak of Huayna Picchu, behind the main site. However, special permits are required and they are issued in limited quantities.

  • 10.- The Inca Trail Classic 4D/3N package includes: Train transport return to Cusco depends on train company availability. The train company only confirm the train schedule option to trekking agencies a few days before a trek for one way tickets from Aguas Calientes in high season dates. The train schedule offered could be anywhere between 4pm and 9pm and usually requires a private bus connection from Ollantaytambo to Cusco provided by SAS Travel. Our preference would be a train departure between 16:30 pm – 5:30 pm but needs to have enough seats available to accommodate the group and usually this is not an issue except around large festivals such as Inti Raymi, Independence day and Easter.
  • 11.- Train tickets: Changes to schedules or dates when train tickets have been finalised incurs an administration charge of US$ 10 per ticket. At times a change of date may only be possible with an upgrade and so the difference in price would need to be paid.
